Whether you are planning the perfect bugout location or chasing your dreams for a homestead, the land is out there to be had. However, most land in the nation is pretty expensive. Particularly if you are looking for a substantial spot that is close to a major city.
The good news is that there is a way to get quality land for next to nothing. You just have to understand how to get your hands on it. It’s going to take some research on your end to get that perfect homestead.
Generational Land Ownership
We are living through an age where landowners are dying and handing that land down to people who have no idea what to do with it. Some people are not even paying the taxes on these pieces of property. This puts them at serious risk of being taken by the states.
The states don’t want land. They want it back in ownership so they can kick back and collect taxes.
In order to expedite the process, the states will take these tax-delinquent properties and put them up for auction at tax deed sales. This can make a huge difference on what a property is typically listed for and what you could have it for.
Look at these tax deeds by county and you will quickly get an idea of what is possible.
Now to Research
You will have to research the properties that are in your area. That is up to you. Once you find a property that fits your needs you have to contact the treasurer as they are the holders of the tax deeds.
If you put in the work on your end you will be able to find the perfect piece of land and get it at a steal.
